  1. First, create a feature branch and publish your changes there. You can only use this integration from within a feature branch, and only on published changes.
  2. Your changes will appear grouped by sources under the Home page. If you successfully integrate with Jira, You are able to create a Jira Issue for each source here inside Amplitude Data.
